Buchanan on the attack in new ad



Sarasota Republican Rep. Vern Buchanan's out with a blistering attack ad on Democrat Keith Fitzgerald, trying to turn the tables in a nasty debate over ethics.

It's a return salvo on Fitzgerald's ad from this week in which he leaves a misleading impression about the investigations facing Buchanan, who has largely been cleared. But today's news about a developer who pleaded guilty to illegal contributions to Buchanan help keep the story alive -- and, Fitzgerald and Democrats hope, their chance at unseating the incumbent.
